Sencha, (a division of Idera, Inc.), a leading provider of cross-platform application developer productivity tools, today announced the release of Ext JS 7.0 featuring numerous updates and additions to its flagship JavaScript framework and UI components.

As JavaScript frameworks evolve, visually appealing and data-intensive web applications have become more efficient to develop. Ext JS offers a rich set of pre-built, high-performance, ready to use components, plugins, and tools to develop engaging enterprise-grade applications. With more than 140 UI components (such as grids, pivot grids, trees, lists, forms, menus, toolbars, and more) and tools that interoperate smoothly, Ext JS makes enterprise-level application development simple yet efficient.

The Ext JS 7.0 release makes many feature enhancements to the Modern framework for initiating desktop and mobile app development. There are also several improvements to Sencha tooling to work seamlessly with Ext JS 7.0.

Component updates in Ext JS 7.0 are also featured in the component libraries for Sencha ExtAngular and Sencha ExtReact, enabling Angular and React developers to benefit from Modern toolkit improvements.

“Version 7.0 represents an important milestone in advancing the limits with our framework and components,” said Kegan Blumenthal, general manager of Sencha. “Most importantly, it stays true to our commitment to make upgrades easier and versions more compatible. Enterprise customers tell us they rely on the stability and security that Ext JS provides over other choices in the market, and we’ll continue to invest in and deliver solutions to meet evolving needs.”
